"This is very very creative and the perspectives are so interesting and different. I've never really even seen anything quite like this. Very great work."

"I love the humor put into this! Very cool work"

"I think the second photograph represents certain individuals success. Most people are moving forward, and some are financially successful for longer times. But the road, "or conveyor belt" eventually ends."

"Love the struggle portrayed in the first image. I know in my life the struggle to make order out of chaos is the greatest I have faced. And, like in the second illustration, sometimes it feels like life has us on a treadmill to knowhere. Who cannot relate to at least one of these?"

"Ahhh, I think it is truly difficult to be unique in the world of B+W photography, and I feel this person has done it. I just love these. Just what is he holding onto? was my first thought."

"I like these very much! Surreal and quirky."

"I like this man struggling with the ropes - it is a great looking image!"
